ERTMS, and more specifically its rail component ETCS, is arguably the technology that has caused most controversy and emotional debate amongst the railway community during the past decade. In many ways, this grand project, coordinated by the European Union, is now reaching a new and important phase in its history. The recently adopted European ERTMS deployment plan should ensure a coordinated migration to ETCS on a number of freight routes. This will open new opportunities in the long run for the railways to strongly compete with road transport.
